Here are snippets of one of my beautiful February brides this year 🙂

Her name is Ria 🙂

Wedding preps were in Makati Shangrila Hotel 🙂

My portable studio already set-up.  Thank you so much for assisting me that day, Ham 🙂 I think that’s your hand seen in the mirror.  Haha!  My NTL airbrush machine is ready as well as my favorite palettes and loose powders from Shu Uemura.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the bride, Ria 🙂  Such an elegant beauty.  Makeup is done.  Ria just wanted something very fresh and natural for her wedding 🙂  I used neutral colors on the eyes with a thin liner on the top lids.  I also chose a light shade of pink for her lips

Thank you so much, Miss Helen, from L’oreal Professionel for doing Ria’s hair.  She wanted a loose, low side bun 🙂

Almost ready to change into her beautiful gown.

It was a beautiful Saturday morning at the Manila Peninsula Hotel last February 15, 2014 🙂

Gorgeous and flawless yoga teacher, Isabel, was getting married that day! 🙂  I first met Isabel during a photo shoot for Metro Weddings Magazine.  She was one of the brides that were featured and we clicked instantly.  Thankful for that day we met! 🙂

Here were Isabel’s beautiful bridesmaids helping her get ready 🙂

I need to do yoga again.  I want arms like Isabel’s.  Haha! 🙂

Isn’t she lovely??? 🙂

One of my favorite hairstylists to work with is George Aliben for Kiehl’s 🙂  Here he is attaching Isabel’s veil.  Thank you, George!

Isabel was glowing inside and out.  She was a stunning bride! I loved her bouquet, too 🙂

Congratulations once again and thank you for making me part of your wedding preps.  Truly a pleasure 🙂
